12:06 pm
joining us from outside the .vent in san francisco is this going to continue to be a big event? or is it going to fade away? think one of the better things they have going on at this event going on is the expectations are more moderate than other apple products. to the extent you have any modest incremental upgrades on the battery life or processor or camera we would expect the refresh cycle a little bit. it should be an incremental positive. scarlet: tempered expectations. we know the iphones seven is not likely to be groundbreaking. . it will be similar to the iphone 6.
12:07 pm
does that matter? i think it matters in the context that there is so much excitement for the next iphone. because if matters it's not a big enough upgrade then perhaps people will hold off on buying a new phone until sometime in 2017. it could end up pushing the replacement cycle a little more. not as bad as what people are apprehensive about right now. matt: what you think is the next time a truly exciting product will come from apple? for are they done with that kind of innovation? >> that has always been the black box of apple. you never know when these innovations come up. of r&dlook at the amount spending they have had you have to believe there is some bigger innovation out of apple beyond phones and watches. matt: is it a car? >> that is one that is talked
12:08 pm
about a fair bit. the other one is the streaming tv service. those are probably the big things people will focus on as new products. some kind of apple tv cable service would be the next on that list. the apple watch has not really taken the market by storm. expectations would be more independent from the phone. matt: relative to apples success watch has product the not been a massive success. relative to any other new watch brand of course it has been unbelievable. ofyou expect any serious grades for the watch the cycle? >> one of the things they will launch or take is the gps
12:09 pm
capability. it makes the watch a better independent device without the phone. can provee more they the watch can be untethered and be a useful device without a phone in your pocket the more useful than the more deployment of apple watches you will get overtime. gps integration would be a big positive. if any other company was selling the millions of units of apple --ches it would be can enter considered a home run. apple is a victim of its own success. it int: you have to put context. apple is trying to generate more revenue out of it software and rely less on hardware. how much does software currently contribute to revenue and how might that change in the coming years? >> it's a 12 in -- $20 billion
12:10 pm
revenue stream. it's going pretty well. it is becoming more important. remain that the stock will always start and end with iphone units. that still drives 65% of the revenue. without iphone units there would be no services to be had. this is a very iphone heavy driven investment at this point. scarlet: thank you. not miss our one-hour special on apple's product event less than an hour from now. join us for all the news, analysis and market reaction. banking analyst mike mayo says he is becoming much more positive on the outlook for large banks. find out why next. this is bloomberg. ♪

12:35 pm
technology? you use water in your pumps and to perform a lot of the processes that they do, water is in short supply in california. are you finding ways to deal with that? joel: our core market prior to fraction -- fracking technology was the process by which you render seawater possible -- pliable. our company has been at the forefront of enabling clean water for water starved economies. california is no different. california is quite difficult in that there is an entrenched environmental lobby that has made the production of desalination facilities difficult. if and when, we will be there to dissipate. scarlet: there is fracking in oklahoma, how much is there a need for water recycling in oklahoma where there was just an

earthquake and people raise concerns about fracking and earthquakes? matt: can you take advantage of that with your technology? .oel: i would say indirectly we would take advantage in as much as looking at the fundamentals of supply and demand. if you look at where preserves are. there have been a number of interruptions, whether it be nigerian uprisings, algerian .ipeline bombings and the like north american hydraulic fracturing or north american hydrocarbon production is a stopgap until the global supply returns to a healthier form. indirectly, yes we will benefit from some of these microcosmic disruptions in supply in the production of oil and we are well-positioned to do that. scarlet: i am glad you ended on a general note because i want to get your thoughts on what opec does next. production what

specific opportunity does that create for u.s. and canadian emp companies? joel: i think the broader theme is the market is set for a sharp return to form. it can be over the next 60-90 days, but there will be a negative surprise shock. other way if you look at how undercapitalized the oil patch has become as emp's cut spending by up to 70% and demand has remained relatively constant. the demand for oil and oil the relatives. with constant demand and reduced supply you will have a shock and i think that will impact prices favorably and the prices that have partnered with companies like schlumberger will do very well on the upswing. , joelt: thank you so much gay, ceo of energy recovery.

joint pain, and pinkeye in about one in five people who are spread, brazil recorded a 20 fold increase in the incidence of microcephaly, infants with the condition have abnormally small heads and usually brain defects. the connection to zika was confirmed by researchers back in april. here is the background. zika, related to other mosquito-borne virus is including dengue fever, was first identified in rhesus monkeys in the zika forest in 1947 and in humans in 1952 in .ganda and tanzania one theory for why it spread so rapidly in the americas recently is that people here have encountered it for the first time and have no natural immunity. here is the argument. in the absence of a vaccine which could take years to develop, the best way to control

all of the indexes have turned south and we have the nasdaq retreating by seven points. abigail doolittle is live at the nasdaq. abigail: we had the nasdaq in a new record high yesterday on the close and putting a fresh intraday record high earlier, now down ever so slightly. perhaps the apple event is going to determine the fate. beneath the surface, lots of big movers including western digital. shares are up 12%, on pace for their best day in about a year after they revised fiscal first-quarter guidance up i as much as 22% of the bottom line. this reflects the sandisk acquisition. we had a great conversation with mark miller at benchmark company , a former physicist and he understands the science. he has been recommending to buy the shares of western digital for some time for two reasons, -- first for the
12:49 pm
demand slashing prices and difficulties around the new 3-d chip. mark mike or has a street high price of $100 per share. he said this is a turnaround. when we take a look at a chart of western digital, it is bullish. buyers are very interested and there is a potential bullish reversal pattern here. not confirmed now, but if the stock can climb higher it may suggest that western digital could climb toward mark miller at benchmark company's price of $100 per share. matt: the apple event is minutes away. let's bring in john butler who covers apple for bloomberg intelligence and out at the apple event in san francisco as corey johnson. the most important thing you will watch for when tim cook takes the stage? on.he headphone jack, come
12:50 pm
i do not care about the headphone jack. i think this is an interest in phenomenon as it relates to how many phones they will sell. what is the expectations around this? it will be about price, how many localities they will sell it into within the first days and weeks and when the first days are. they lost the iphone 6 and six plus. going to jack the price for current these undervalued in china and europe? they may tell us a lot of information about that and that is stuff i will be listening for. scarlet: cory is not worried about the headphone jack, but i am. i like the way i use my iphone now and i think a lot of people do.
12:51 pm
do you think that means people will take up older versions of the iphone and not spend on the iphone 7 or whatever they call it? john: i think that is the risk in the near term and i say that because they have a history of removing ports. they took out the ethernet, people will get used to that -- people got used to that just as i think they will get used to the headphone jack. initially i think people will trade down and go with the the iphone 6s plus. obsolet you are not ing all of those headphones you have in a drawer? pretty soon this event will be like buying a microwave up and -- of an.
12:52 pm
it is a big event, but not something where you think, when will they come out with the next microwave oven? do you think it'll lose some of the excitement it had. has. i think it already put people inill the stores to create the illusion of artificial lines. thethey going to obsolete iphone 6 and go with the iphone se at the bottom and the brand-new 7 and 7 plus at the top end? this will make a big difference in terms of gross margins and operating margins and inventory management. one thing we talked about earlier on bloomberg radio, discussing with hillary clark is the conversion cycle. they manage their inventory so well and they generate cash almost instantly as they are selling phones, unlike any of their competitors and one of the
12:53 pm
ways they do this is by having a limited number of sku's. if they go out there with multiple models, that adds competition to the supply chain line. let's see how they manage that and what it means for inventory. matt: that is a strong point. john, what do you think? will they cut it down? they do not normally have all -- have model proliferation. samsung does that an apple plays in the premium segment and if they leave that option on the table, the iphone 6 and the 6s and the plus version, there is a trade down risk and you are impacting revenue. if you narrow the choices and the field is all concentrated on higher price devices, it plays to your advantage. matt: i think the risk is you could lose a few people on the
12:54 pm
margin, perhaps -- but maybe a risk worth taking. scarlet: as you stand outside the venue, in the past we have event -- aeen a big fan boy event, people lining up in a lot of excitement and people are blogging and tweeting about it. is it generating that same type of buzz? the invitations to the event are tightly managed by apple. it is a combination of fan boys, bloggers, professional journalists, the analysts from the street, industry analysts, a lot of apple employees. apple chose to have it at this venue that fits a lot of people. they have had a smaller events in other places. it is certainly a big production effort. they have risers for the tv media and they have to clear the park of all of the people that would normally congregate in the park. the homeless are pushed off to the side.
12:55 pm
it is an and norma's that apple is trying to manage their image because it is so important. it is one of the ways they get such huge gross margins and operating margins that their competitors can only dream of. matt: suppliers are pretty happy . bloomberg. on the i have it organized by three-month price chains -- change and you can see how much green is on the screen. companies like lg have done them -- incredibly well. this must bode well for future sales because surely apple is ordering enough stuff that they can make money. john: one thing i would add is that they are coming up against this super cycle two years ago where people came rushing in to buy the iphone 6 when they suddenly had a choice to buy the first large screen iphone.
12:56 pm
those devices are now two years old and batteries begin to fail over that timeframe and screens get scratched up. processors get slow. app developers always develop to the latest processor. i think that is part of it. matt: thank you so much for joining us from bloomberg intelligent. corey johnson on the west coast as well. cory will be joined by emily chang with more on apple as we begin special coverage of the big product announcement. scarlet: a spokesman of chipotle, chris, they held introductory talks with bill ackman -- buying a 120 and dollar stake in the company. this is bloomberg. ♪

1:01 pm
so much so that the existence of a headphone jack will be a lead today. i want to paint a context of what is going on with iphone sales and what has been at -- happening with apple. iphone sales in particular have been coming down in subsequent quarters. we saw a slowdown in sales in terms of revenue and a pronounced double-digit slowdown. we saw double-digit the client in the number of units, how many phones they are selling. coming into this throughout all of the calendar year thus far we may have expected those trends to continue into the quarter we are in right now. this,ms of the slowing is it comes this new iphone. their goal is to sell a lot of them for a lot of profit. we will look for things that
1:02 pm
give us clues about what we expect for this. how many places will sell the phones, how quickly they will roll them out, how slowly they roll them out to new localities. those are indications of strength for apple. the will be lots of interesting stuff, maybe a watch, maybe mac. this is really about the iphone, their biggest source of profit and one of the biggest businesses in the entire world. emily: we are not expecting -- not expecting a big design change. however, this is the first time apple is unveiling new iphones as iphone sales are falling. does that make this event more important perhaps than others? cory: i think maybe the opposite . it is in the eyes of the beholder. to the comment that matt miller made, suggesting that the iterations of this existing device that has been in the market since june of two dozen

eight -- 2008 are less important than iterations of pre-smartphone to post smartphone. edges tooling around the that with so many smartphones in the market and the slowdown -- particularly in china where inrtphone sales of over 20% two dozen 14 1% in 2015. we do not know what they are in 2016. the existence of smartphones is important -- much more important than the alteration once they are in the market. for business of service, it is hugely important. emily: the event is off to not as serious start. tim cook is apparently in a video with james cordon doing karaoke, singing one republic. i am sure that is revving up the crowd. cory johnson, our editor at large. he will be back shortly.
1:04 pm
we have three experts joining us for the hour and will bring headlines live from the event and tackling some of the most pressing questions basing apple right now. how can the company resurrect iphone sales? how does it stack up against the rising competition? joining us now is o'malley could venture partner and longtime apple watcher, chris gordon and julie ask, vice president of global research. how big a deal these think this particular event is? you can say maybe there is not a big design change. apple is at a turning point where they need to get iphone sales backup. >> i think this is an interesting time for the company. they need to get the iphone 7 sales up, but also the sales of their services. with this new operating system,
1:05 pm
the new device they will add more integration with apple services which will boost revenue. the new iphone always boosts sales. they need it badly. especially to stop stock from sliding down. emily: apple music, we are expecting an overhaul. julie, how do you see the pieces of the pie shifting. om said agree with what . if we look three years ago, only about 8% of consumers own a laptop, a tablet, and a smartphone and today that is 37% . there is still a lot of upside in the market, but i agree that services will have to grow to be a bigger chunk in the revenue. twoy: a lot of people have
1:06 pm
your contracts and a lot of people who could upgraded this , are, my question, chris the announcements we expect to hear today and off? bloomberg has done a lot of reporting and we expect the dual camera processing, maybe no headphone jack, lots of people upset about that but maybe apple is ushering us into the future. chris: i think iphone sales are generally cyclical. the iphone 6 was a huge hit. people are coming up on contracts and i think we are very excited about this and i am interesting to see what happens with the headphone jack. i think apple thinks about these things methodically and they knew what they are doing. they will not leave people behind with this. emily: you are a camera aficionado come are you excited about the new potential camera? om: i am very excited because i will carry one less camera around now.
1:07 pm
i are take all of my pictures with it and this is actually bad news for people in the camera business because what this new phone will signify is the shift from a hardware camera to mostly software driven logarithmic cameras of the future which is where companies like apple will have an advantage. i am super excited with what we could do with all of the lens cameras in the future. i cannot wait to get my hands on a device, to be honest. emily: tim cook has opened the presentation talking about apple music and he says it now has 17 million subscribers. apple music got off to a rough start and there is a lot of competition with spotify, pandora. how hopeful are you about the future of a revamped apple music? julie: i would say optimistic.
1:08 pm
apple needs to continue to grow revenue that comes from services . a media is one of the more important categories and in things like payments and other emerging categories will grow into significant revenue streams if they execute well. emily: as someone who worked on the mac operating system, can apple bring it in services? .hris: you hope they would it is clearly the direction the industry is going. services will be important to processing capability, storage capability. apple has said they will basically put all of the smarts on the phone. i am not sure how that matches up with building a better services experience. it remains to be seen whether this is the right direction. emily: quickly let's talk about no headphone jack. there are reports that there will be no headphone jack and they would likely have an adapter so you would not be out of luck right away.
1:09 pm
obviously this is something not a lot of people are happy about. people have said they use it for other things. how big a deal these think this would be? om: apple does this all the time. i remember people and planing about no floppy drive, no cd-rom, no dvd drive, it is the same. they have to push the industry forward otherwise silicon valley does not like to move as fast as it likes to think. especially in hardware. emily: i remember when it happened with the charger and we all got used to it. the world did not end. we will continue this conversation. tim cook is now talking about apple downloads saying that they have had 140 billion app downloads from the app store and we are live at the apple event foamn francisco here with malik, julie ask, and chris bourdon. mark crumpton has more from our newsroom. is proposingtrump

1:12 pm
from the apple event. some of these coming in from twitter. a tweet from the apple account "new cameras, water resistant, stereo speakers, longer battle -- longer battery life. this is 7." not sure if they tweeted this early because of is what we are waiting to hear. no headphone jack would make the phone more water resistant. what is your reaction to new details we are getting? chris: i think apple has not been historically great at twitter. as far as the headphone jack, this is apple pushing the industry forward. they will give headphones in a box and for most people that is fine. if you have an external headlight -- headphones, you box.get a dongle in the it is a good opportunity for the headphone industry to move forward by getting good signal out of the lightning jack and make for good audio solutions. emily: unofficially or un-of --
1:13 pm
or officially we see the iphone 7 with longer battery life, stereo speakers, water resistant . talk to us about the technology and how difficult it is to make a phone water resistant? julie: i think the typical consumer has a hard time appreciating how hard it is to get that much and such a small package and make it water resistant and not have it overheat and burst into flames. emily: it is ironic because our producer dropped her water in that phone in water in it was underwater for three minutes, 12 feet of water in it still worked . this is something apple has obviously been working toward and now they are saying it is water resistant. how big a deal is it? om: sony has had it for two years roughly and the android devices. this is -- they are catching up with the rest of the market except are the headphones and stereo sound.
1:14 pm
you see it in the android devices, meh. emily: i am excited, as a clumsy person. bourdon, omhris malik, we continue with our apple coverage. officially or unofficially, tweeting out the apple 7. we will talk more about it and there is tim cook singing carpool karaoke. i love how he can sing like that. i know someone who knows a thing or two about fashion --

♪ emily: welcome back to our special live coverage of apple's product announcement.
1:17 pm
i am emily chang in san francisco. apple announcing a new iphone, the iphone 7. water resistant with stereo speakers on twitter. we will get back to the event, but it want to get where the markets desk where julie hyman has been taking a look at how stocks are trading. i believe you will start with an tendo -- start with nintendo? julie: nintendo is going to bring some of the gains to the iphone. this is something that looks like a big win for apple. nintendo has been reluctant to do this. this means mario will come to a paid -- on a paid app to the iphone. it is up now 14% after apple getes themselves -- as we announcements from the event, they see a little bit of a bump up from the low of the session.
1:18 pm
we will see -- continue to track them and i will have more perspective on what we tend to see the stock do on announcement days. looking at some of the other charts we watch with regard to apple, the context into this announcement. mentioned, going into this announcement the back room -- background is that revenue has been declining for some extent. quarterly, wee have seen the kleins europe -- declines year-over-year. that is why pressure is on apple each time you get a product announcement. the other reason is because how dependent apple has become on the iphone. this goes all the way back to 2006. the total bar is total revenue and the purple is iphone revenue as a percentage of it.
1:19 pm
overall revenue has been going up year-over-year, but you see iphone revenue as a percentage of the total really accounting for more and more. this is expressed in this chart. if you are a bloomberg customer you can take a look at it at g #btb 2444. emily: julie hyman is keeping an eye on the stocks for us. cory johnson is our editor at large live at the civic center in san francisco where the father of mario has been on stage talking with tim cook about the announcement from nintendo. apple officially announcing a new iphone 7 water resistant with a better camera, stereo speakers. what do you think? great. think it is we would have expected all of this stuff. generally, improvements on the model out there.
1:20 pm
i still want to know about pricing and where they will sell it. when we look at what has happened with iphone pricing over the course of the last six quarters we see a dramatic move down for the average selling price of iphone and that principally -- specifically in the last quarter -- was about sales of the iphone se. the choice they made to compress margins and prices so you can see a drop in the revenue her phone or it will they try to squeeze less profit into them, but sell a lot more phones? we will get a sense of that when we see what the pricing will be. it will be important with this business of apple that is massively profitable. their market share can be less than 30% of the business, the profits are likely 90% of the business. if you look at the place where smartphone growth has happened, if you look across the world, you can see the idc numbers show a huge slippage in terms of the
1:21 pm
growth going on for smartphones worldwide. when you look at china, china's growth in smartphones have gone from spectacular to a comparative collapse and i think that is one of the biggest factors for apple in their slowdown in sales is the slowdown in china and add that to the shrinking average selling price of the iphone's and we will get clues to a lot of that around this announcement today. johnson, our editor at large live in the apple event in san francisco. apple shares slightly down and bump up.shares the tweet from apple has actually been deleted, so somebody messed up there. we will continue bloomberg -- clicknnouncement on bloomberg coverage on apple

apple has just unveiled a new watch and new software features. also said that pokemon go will be coming to the apple watch. bitnt to talk a little about competition. the battle between apple and samsung is only eating up. iphone sales are falling as samsung had its most profitable quarter in two years. apple may have something else working in its favor. samsung just issued a massive havel of the galaxy notes been due to an issue of exploding batteries. it is stacking up against increasing competition. with that, the ceo of 15 year veteran. research.orrester

how devastating is this recall at this particular time when they had a head start at getting the new phone out there and now androidets are its
1:32 pm
space. they are doing interesting things. phone.s a new high-end they are going squarely after the samsung market. the apple has still gone back to what apple used to be, a product for a very elite audience in a demographically high-end office spectrum, so they have a much higher room to make profit and sell devices. as far as samsung is concerned, battery issues, i think the responses terrible.
1:33 pm
they should be recalling every single device. blaming a supplier? no. it is your device. apple did not run away. make -- wee will made a mistake and in the end they took all the heat for it. emily: there is still question of the origin of the battery problem. we were speaking about how apple cannot win a race to the bottom. can they pick up some of the lower end customers around the samsung, despite the recall, is rising along with some of these other players? >> maybe. i think make -- we made a mistake and in the end they took all the heat for it. is makingle's focus the best product they possibly can. this is the dna. >> the cheaper iphone has been doing better than a lot of folks expected. >> you get into a smaller price form factor.maller
1:34 pm
they are not sacrificing any of their beliefs to do that or philosophy to do that. emily: talk about what is going on with the supply chain. as we understand, apple is volume. even as iphone sales are falling, they are tweaking suppliers as well. quick there is always a challenge because consumers have an expectation for what they expect to pay with a phone. apple is putting more and more functionality in the package while trying to maintain what they had two or three years ago. it is tough all the way around. i think it is a very typical business practice. emily: apple shares are still down slightly. nintendo popping. the ceo talking about pokemon go . saying it has now been downloaded 500 million times

around the world. i want to go straight to our correspondent, julie correspondent, julie hyman watching the stocks for us. >> nintendo has been extending its games. this is the u.s. shares of nintendo. we will see how they train in asia in the wake of this announcement. this is an announcement that got the most enthusiastic reception. as for apple shares themselves, we're not seeing a lot of shares of the moment. heading down a little bit lower than the unchanged level. now down about .4%. it is not unusual to see a delayed reaction. we took the past five years of the apple launches, ever since tim cook took over the company.
1:36 pm
so the day of, there has been a mix reaction. 2013 there was a negative reaction. disappointment over that. in all of these cases, the reaction the following day has been larger in percentage terms. whether up or down, it has been a bigger reaction. it seems as though investors do it take a day to figure out what the new launch means for the company. look at this seasonality chart for a stock. it looks complicated, but basically the annual movement over the past five years. we have seen the stock rise 2.4% going into today's release. what you have tended to see is then tendo -- september is a pretty negative month. if you look at how the stock does from the launch date through the end of the year, it
1:37 pm
rising four point 5%. in other words, apple gains intensity and apple had a five-year winning streak going into 2015 in which it fell. here is the five-year chart. they had a record high back in 2015. since then, they are down 19%. and mirrors the declines weakening we have been talking about in the company revenue and gross margins. since then, we at seen a decline. it has moved sideways over the past year or so. gaining just about 2% so far in 2016, which is not exactly stellar performance compared to historical averages. emily: julie hyman, thank you for the update. more coming out of the apple event just on the street must. we have been wondering if the apple watch would get any

company in the world can do. it is inventing new things. the company has been widely criticized for not coming up with new inventions that can rival the iphone. it has achieved such great big success. the iphone is so big, everything else pales in comparison. >> apple is also on the hook for $14.5 billion, which they are supposed to pay back to the irish government. >> apple is also on the hook for $14.5 billion, which they are supposed to pay back to the irish government. parliament has been called back to debate the issue. how big could that be to the bottom line? virtually nothing. 6% of the cash at the end of last quarter. 0%would have probably impact.
1:47 pm
ireland would love to have the cash, but the concern is it will hurt the future cash flow down the line. i think there is a lot more to play out there. rules.iling the irish setting itself as more of a cash haven than other eu partners. that will is a battle go on. in terms of perfecting the balance sheet of apple, the cash flow generation, i do not think we can expect to see any input. johnson live outside the apple product event in san francisco. more headlines coming in. my key plus design for runners with gps capability. something that runners will be very happy about because they can run without the phone and .ot get lost

it is really great to see them come out with the next version of the watch. i think it is good for reviving sales and interest in the watch category. love to know more about the services they are about to introduce. i keep going back there because this is not as a chop hardware anymore, all about services. let's see what they come up with. so not very much unexpected far. the watch had not been we much beforehand. i think that is interesting. i am interested to see where apple is going with the services aspect of the business. they have said specifically we will do a live the computing and bring data down from the club and do all of the manipulations. i am not sure this is the right time for them. i think they will be limited in the long run.

so i am interested to see what the new phones have store for us. emily: your last thoughts? i would agree with what has been said so far. when you are selling products like this, you have to have a new release every year. we're always going to be on a journey. you could say these features are not big enough for pop enough, but once they have this in their hand, they will realize what a is an delete forward compared to the products that they had today. emily: ceo who worked at apple for 15 years. partner at true ventures, thank you all so much for joining us. in go.event continuing still waiting for the iphone seven announcement. we have gotten a lot of information about forthcoming
